Nanovate CoP - A Cost Effective Hard Chrome Plating Alternative

Posted on Tue, Jun 04, 2013

About 10 years ago, Integran embarked on an effort to develop a "green" alternative to toxic hard chrome plating, which became our Nanovate CoP plating process.  Nanovate is Integran's line on nanocrystalline metal electroplating processes and "CoP" signifies that the metal is a Cobalt Phosphorous alloy.

Adhesion of Metals Plated onto Plastics

Posted on Thu, Apr 11, 2013

We announced yesterday a new patent covering plated plastic products that can withstand repeated, aggressive thermal cycles.  Integran can achieve these high levels of adhesion using its state of the art polymer activation processes.  Because Integran's customers are often looking for structural reinforcement of polymers, adhesion is critically important in order to effectively spread the loads between the metal exoskeleton and the polymer core. This is particularly important for our high performance applications that see significant thermal cycling, as is common is aerospace (lightweight brackets etc.), defense (housings for weight critical airborne optics, weapons and UAVs) and space applications (with heavy thermal cycle loads).
